First published in 1983, Murder in the Dark is Margaret Atwood's seventh work of fiction or her tenth book of poetry, depending on how you slice it. These short prose forms range from fictionalized autobiography through prose-poetry, mini-romance, and mini–science fiction.
 
A feast of comic entertainment, Murder in the Dark is Atwood at her wittiest, most thoughtful, and most provoking.
